Good overall condition. The glass presents with some very light surface scratches and the rim of one vase presents with a very tiny chip, not visually distracting. The patinated steel presents with some light surface scratches, rare instances of light wear to the patina and a few scattered oxidation/rust stains. All consistent with age and use.
The glass footbase of one vase is separated from the vase and glued to the base. One small metal piece from this glass footbase is unfixed and there is a small chip along the missing element, both not visible when the vase is set on the footbase. The glass top of one stand presents with remnants of two adhesive paper pieces. A glass element of one stand is not perfectly fixed within the steel.
